    1878-S Quarter, Toned MS64
    Rare in High Grade

    1878-S 25C MS64 PCGS. With a mintage of 140,000 pieces, the 1878-S Seated quarter is a better date in all grades but is particularly elusive in Mint State. This Choice example is high-end for the issue, showing satiny luster shining through mottled sun-orange and tan-gray toning. The strike is bold, and a lack of obvious abrasions delivers excellent eye appeal. Finer pieces are rare and far out of reach for most collectors. Population: 4 in 64, 5 finer (5/16).(Registry values: P4)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23VA, PCGS# 5510)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
